Have you ever considered turning your pool into a money-making paradise? 

Meet Swimply – an innovative platform that provides an exceptional opportunity to transform your pool into a profitable asset by sharing it with your local community.

By hiring your pool out to interested guests, you can cover your maintenance expenses or just earn some extra cash. Either way, in today’s economic climate, what better way than to cover some of these additional costs? 

Whether you opt for hourly or daily rentals, you retain full control over your pool’s availability with the ability to personally approve or decline booking requests.

How much can I charge for my pool?

Average rates for hire range from $40 to a whopping $150 per hour depending on the size of your pool and amenities you’re offering.

Enhancing your guest experience with added perks is a fantastic way to elevate your listing. These perks, known as amenities, encompass a wide range of offerings, from essentials like towels and pool floats to luxuries like spas, fire pits, and saunas. Some hosts go the extra mile by offering specialised packages for occasions like birthday celebrations or romantic getaways. You have the flexibility to configure amenities as complimentary or chargeable on an hourly or flat rate basis.

Guests searching for the perfect pool can also narrow down their options by filtering for listings with specific premium amenities. While setting up your amenities, you can choose from those that are commonly available. Additionally, you have the freedom to create “custom amenities” at the bottom of your page, allowing you to offer unique and personalised extras.

It’s essential to note that none of your amenities should involve the provision of alcohol, as this would void your insurance policy. Guests are welcome to bring their own alcohol in compliance with your established rules and guidelines.
